I've been working extremely hard to get so many things done. With my birthday coming up next week I have planned my own birthday party and have a theme Superheroes and Villains since everyone has had a tough year and have conquered so much....including me. This is my first year that with my Multiple Sclerosis that I have not gone to the hospital, I'm not celebrating my birthday in the hospital in several years (last year I went shortly after my birthday, so I still consider that birthday hospital stay), and I'm working the hardest on my health to stay out of the hospital for the rest of the year even going through the withdrawal of not having a necessary medicine due to Staywell insurance complications.
I've been so wound up in working on my party where by the way is at the Alehouse, a restaurant with a bar I used to visit quite often and plan parties for the teachers of the district I worked in. Those parties were called, to stay out of trouble from the head cheese, TIPS meetings (Teacher Insanity Prevention Services)...LOL. Well this birthday party I'm planning is a costume party to boot and I have some games planned and some former students from quite a few moons ago are coming, one that is a return guest (came the year previous) with their child and soon to be husband. I'm quite touched that many of my students have worked hard to stay in touch with me and often are concerned about my health and well being.
So in doing all of this, I realized it was Saturday, talked about making my #Caturday posts, watched my Saturday cartoons....BUT MISSED DOCTOR WHO. How could I miss the second episode of my favorite show? And with the Doctor still going through the transformation of becoming the new Doctor, changing persona and gaining access to all of his intelligence, like talking to Dinosaurs. How can I call myself a Whovian? I have disappointed the entire TARDIS ethereal spirits that flitter about me. But thankfully while working on this post I'm able to catch up on #DoctorWho repeat , it was listed wrong on my cable guide and thankfully I have the chance to watch my favorite show and maintain my self proclaimed top status as a #Whovian.
To brag I can at least say that I have accomplished several missions today from the party planning to finishing up another reviewer book and organizing some other ARC books. I did find though that some things did not get posted to Facebook and the application has been finicky not only for me but others are missing posts as well too. I had received this wonderful gift package from @AngieFox one of the authors that I fell in love with after reading several of their ARC books from Netgalley. I hope she has a chance to read this and tomorrow I'm hoping this storm won't knock out the internet again so that I can reposts my thanks to her filled with the pictures of the items that I received.
By the way, if there are any other authors, bloggers, publishers, or those reading this that would like to send me a birthday present of book(s), I will not refuse. IF there just happens to be a signature in there it would be even more exciting. Real books I keep to the side because it is difficult for me to hold the book, turn the page, and when my vision goes I have the Kindle read to me. So if you would like to send me something, please make it in a digital form, mobi or Amazon (azw) if possible. I do read books, don't get me wrong, but it is more difficult for me to do and takes more energy, almost taking some of the enjoyment out of the journey.
#Caturday so to get a little more of my desperation for The Walking Dead to start again I am reading an apacolyptic book Foamers by Justin Kassab, and the zombie P.I. series of Dan Shamble (Chambeaux) by Kevin J. Anderson, Slimy Underbelly.
Then I must get to work as one of the Street Team Shadow Guards for Danielle Ellison known for Salt (I really hope to get this book for my birthday so I can read the sequel when it comes out) and Alex Kahler known for Immortal Circus (a Kindle series that came in three separate books Acts 1-3)). Their new books are launching soon and so they have decided to team up on their launches in spreading the good name for reading sakes. Danielle's new book is titled Follow me Through Darkness and Alex's book is called Martyr. We were given a list of tasks to accomplish, with the winner gaining a big prize at the end. Those of you that know me know that I'm big on competing and I work hard to win. So wish me luck that I win......because I'm working hard to do it. Here are the covers of the books so you can start envisioning what you shall pick up soon. I can't wait to start reading it myself.....once I get this zombie kick out of my system of course. LOL. Stay tuned for more on these authors and their books, their bios, their journeys, and me winning......ahem....I mean and their work. LOL.
Happy #Caturday everyone. #Caturday and #DoctorWho premiere, coincidence....I think not. For everyones viewing pleasure tonight. Sweet dreams when you click the TV off and open your book to start the journey to your dreams.
Sorry that I've been a little absent from this site. Now that I'm out from feeling under the weather, I'll return e-mails and comments as fast as I can. Thank you for your patience in the mean time.
